RSVP via Meetup is mandatory to attend the talks, due to limited seating capacity. Registration won’t be required to attend the event from 21:00 for the game showcase part.
Talk & Play is a free event, taking place every two months, that provides the opportunity to game enthusiasts, players and makers to meet in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. Everybody's welcome, regardless of their background and knowledge level: if you like games, we'll make sure you have a good time! This is NOT an event only aimed at developers.

For this edition we'll have 4 talks, 5 minutes each:
— Em Lazer-Walker: Running a live battle royale game with a team of 2?!
Flappy Royale is Flappy Bird reimagined as a 100-player battle royale. We'll talk about how we designed a massively multiplayer online game requiring no server upkeep, and how the game is secretly an act of guerilla game history preservation.

— Freja Alexandra Knudsen & Marek Plichta: Socks & Sandals
The day we dressed up as silly looking German tourist and went to fancy galleries in our hometown Berlin. A game about performing and embarrassing yourself in the real world.

— Maren Brede: Surrounded by introverts — Tales of a role-playing (mis)fit
What I observed during two campaigns of DnD and learned about myself and games.
— Marishka Zachariah: How Building Virtual Worlds Helped me Explore and Define my Mental Health and Queerness
In this talk, Marishka explores their design structure on how building virtual worlds based on their personal experiences helped address topics surrounding their queerness and anxiety. They will also discuss various ways they design within limitations, especially in regards to physical space, and prioritizing evoking the feeling of a space and situation, rather than simply mapping out the exact space itself.
As usual, there will also be a section dedicated to short announcements from the community – get in touch to reserve a spot: http://berlingamescene.com/contact/
